High Blood Pressure - Mind Scared of Heart DiseaseAge: 41
Height: 5 ft 7 inch
Current Weight: 62 Kg
Mind: Always at back of mind have a fear that I am going to have raised BP or going to develop a severe heart symptom
happening to me any moment. I am depressed but I am positive towards life.
Background of Problem: I do a high pressure job in software industry. In Year 2002 late evening while walking briskly back to
home I felt back out and found my heart beating very fast (120 bpm) and tightness in chest. Immediately contacted
cardiologist and my BP was recorded 140/90. ECG was normal. I was prescribed beta blocker (atenolol 2.5) and alprazolam 0.25
for 15 days. My weight was 68 kg.Following that event I started selective eating to reduce my weight and reduced my weight to
After 2 months I went to Escorts Heart Institute Delhi for Comprehensive Cardiac Checkup and 24 hrs holter monitoring. They
told me that it is anxiety attack and asked to contact psychatrist because, medical reports were absolutely normal. But
somthing at the back of my mind was telling me that there is something wrong with my heart.
Since then, I never felt myself recovered and have developed a fear of having some sort of heart disease. I started eating
very cautiously particularly salt, fat, eggs, meat, Coffee. I don't smoke and don't drink ever.
In last 5/6 years I had several anxiety attacks (7-8 times) sometimes without any reason, sometimes while thinking of some
one elses problem or the work pressure ahead. It happens when I have overworked and had less sleep. After every such attack I
got my ECG, Lipid, Sugar, Thyroid done but all found to be within normal range.
Recently, it was found that my BP was shooting to 160/100, pulse rate going above 100 in such conditions with tightness in
chest. My ECHO did not reveal any problem. My doctor has started giving me daily dose of remipril 2.5, indral(Beta Blocker) 20 mg and Alprazolam 2.5 mg daily for last 3 months.
For last 1.5 months I have started brisk walking 3-4 km in 30/35 minutes, reduced my weight from 64 to 62 Kg. I am taking low
salt prohibited diet but still find my BP sometimes going to 150/100 in random checkup. At times I have found my BP to be
120/80 immediately after the walk of 30 minutes.
I heard homeopathic medicines are safe and work on the root cause. Please help me.
